Dear Biomch-l'ers:

Can anyone refer me to a reference, or provide me with values for
that matter, delineating force values for the individual quad muscles
during contraction? Ideally, I would like to know forces exerted by
the rectus femoris, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis, vastus
medialis, and vastus medialis oblique (treated seperately) during
isotonic knee extension. Anything close to this would be appreciated,
however.

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated....
